  • Chicken nuggets – 16
  • Mayonnaise/Cream cheese spread – as required
  • Lettuce (Iceberg/Romaine) – 7 to 8 leaves
  • White bread – 8 slices
  • Oil for deep frying
  1. Deep fry the chicken nuggets. If you are using the frozen nuggets, fry them immediately after taking out from the freezer – no need to thaw them.
  2. Once the nuggets are golden brown set them aside on an absorbent kitchen towel.
  3. Spread the mayo or cream cheese on one side of each bread slices.
  4. To assemble one sandwich, roughly tear the lettuce leaves and place few pieces on one bread slice. Please 4 nuggets as they fit. It will also depend on the size of the bread you are using.
  5. Now place few more pieces of lettuce leaves and then cover it with another bread slice with the mayo side down.
  6. Place the sandwich on the hot griller and grill them till crisp and golden brown. Make sure to brush some oil or melted butter on the grill plates before placing your sandwich; else it may be difficult to take them out. You can also apply some butter on the outer side of the breads for a richer taste.
  7. Out from the grill and enjoy with tomato ketchup or any of your favorite sauce.
